Recipe calls for instant yeast but I only have active dry yeast. Can I swap?

I'm making pizza dough following Reinhart's BBA recipe, which calls for overnight refrigeration.  I thought I had instant yeast but I only have a jar of active dry yeast. The recipe calls for mixing the yeast and other ingredients together at once using cold ingredients, and doesn't call for rising.  Can I use the active dry yeast? If so, what should I do differently than I'd do with the instant yeast?  Thank you all in advance (again!!)
